Psychology

There is a strong link between bruxism and psychosocial factors.

Bruxism is induced by central mechanisms.
Stress, anxiety and frustrations will increase the grinding and clenching.

We learn stress management and relaxation techniques to reduce the stress and anxiety that can trigger clenching.

Again stressmanagement plays an important part.

Pills

Certain foods, medications and drugs can reinforce bruxism. By eliminating these from your diet and ridding yourself of any negative habits, it can eliminate the clenching.

We help you understand these impacts.
